[netCDF #MLU-486882]: NetCDF must be built with netCDF-4 enabled

Hi Rakia,

> I would like to convert netCDF files to Ascii using C++ as described here:

Which of the two netCDF C++ distributions did you download?  One is labelled
"NetCDF-4 C++ Source Code" and the other "Legacy NetCDF-3 C++ Source Code".
If you downloaded the first, it requires that the netCDF C library has already
been built and installed somewhere (for example in lib/, bin/, and include/
subdirectories under /usr/local).  The second "legacy C++" API is adequate for
reading and writing netCDF-3 files, which are still the majority of netCDF data.
But it still requires that the netCDF-3 library is installed first.

I think for MacOS-X, you need to set DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH instead of

Please let us know if this helps.
